Jack Worthing has created an imaginary brother named Ernest, who frequently requires his presence in town – the perfect escape from tedious tea parties.
Algernon Moncrieff has invented a fictitious friend named Bunbury, who regularly summons him to the country – an excellent excuse to avoid dreary dinners.
However, these seemingly harmless deceptions cause colossal confusion when both men make proposals of marriage. But who, precisely, is engaged to whom?
“John Risebero and Ben Horslen gain maximum humour from this sparkling production. Delightful entertainment.”
"Strong performances all round and wonderful comic timing. A highly exuberant interpretation of this classic play"
Camden New Journal
"A delightful and worthwhile interpretation"
"John Risebero's stage design is one of the best I've seen on the fringe"
“Lively and entertaining, bringing Wilde’s sharp wit to life. The onstage chemistry is as obvious as often as it is laugh-out-loud funny”
